That looks really good! I had planned on just leaving mine stock since I'm doing light gray accents anyway, but this doesn't look too hard and, as I already said, this looks really nice.

Thank you to both superpickel for being the guinea pig and to you for the DIY.

Well done!

Anyone know why my 2012 tc series 7.0 wheel controls do not light up? Is this factory, or is mine defective?

so can any actually confirm or deny that disconnecting the horn (from the airbag connection) will actually not deploy later on if it is unplugged?

looks nice man. you should paint the red around the air con controls too .i think it would look pretty cool. and im not sure about the silver sides on the insides of the door. it MIGHT look cool, but it could be too much too. imo it would look cool if you had red seats too. just my 2 cents. but that steering wheel looks real slick. good work

you should push the rod towards the center of the steering wheel oon both sides
and yes when everything is back on just push the horn all the way back in and it will click back into place
